Christian Union

Welcome to CU!

We are a group of students that are passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ: His life, death and resurrection and how this applies to us. We want to share this news with every student at University of Derby all year round - this includes you! We want students to live a life full of purpose & fun and have a great community around to support them during their time at university. 

If you’ve heard about Jesus a couple of times a year and have questions or if you love Jesus and already know Him, we would love to meet you and welcome you to CU. We meet every Thursday at 7:00pm, whether that’s in person or online. Bring a friend, grab a cuppa and have a listen!

We also have many opportunities throughout the year for you to attend such as socials, events and fundraising nights!

DUCU is supported by UCCF: The Christian Unions, an organisation that helps to equip Christian Unions in universities across the country.


Equip Meetings

We meet every Thursday evening in Blends at the One Friar Gate Square campus to spend time together socialising, worshipping, praying and reading the Bible. Our main event starts at 7:00pm and will last for around an hour and a half (1h30m) before we pack up and head off to the pub! Doors open at 6:30pm.

Last semester, we'll looked at our series called 'Meals with Jesus' and this semester, we'll be looking at our brand new series 'Get Wisdom'. A tough set of topics each week to unpack but we know it's going to be life-changing! Come along at 6:30pm every Thursday. There's no need to book to come to our Equip Meetings, just turn up!   


Re:freshers '22 Week

Refreshers week (31st Jan - 5th Feb) is here and we are so excited! Just like freshers fortnight, we have an event planned every night and we'd love for you to join us. Our events these year include, Quiz Night, Acoustic Night, Games Night, Film Night and even a GIAG Try CU event. On the Saturday 5th, we'll be heading to The Standing Order (Wetherspoons) for breakfast at 10:30am so if you're not able to make it to all of our evening events, come along for breakfast as we'd love to meet you!
